Happy Fall!

Click HERE for my Pink Persimmon "Home Sweet Home" card.


Pumpkins - love 'em.  When I saw the Autumn Greetings stamp set from Market Street I was instantly smitten... pumpkins and a scarecrow... sign me up!  This week I had the perfect excuse (who needs an excuse?) to ink them up for the Paint the Town Color Challenge over on the Market Street blog.  Plus, it just so happens that Market Street is sponsoring the Card Patterns challenge this week as well.  Two for the price of one... yes, please.  Here's the inspiration:

Card Patterns

So fun to combine a simple, striking sketch with a great color combo.  One last peek at my paper-pieced pumpkins (say that 5 times fast):

I love your colourful patterned pumpkins. This reminds me so much of a quilted wall hanging. So sweet.
